The THIMUN Foundation, established in The Hague in 1981, is an accredited NGO with the United Nations Department of Public Information and was granted, in 2003, Roster Consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. THIMUN’s flagship MUN conference began in 1968, with a second conference added in Singapore in 2005. The THIMUN Qatar office was established in 2011 to meet the growing demand for quality MUN experiences for high school students in the Middle East.
The THIMUN Qatar office is located at Qatar Academy and staffed by THIMUN Qatar Head Lisa Martin and Regional Conference Coordinator Jesse Atkins. Based on the THIMUN philosophy, all events are planned and run by high school students for their peers, making THIMUN Qatar one of the region’s most innovative and important leadership incubators. The THIMUN Qatar program has doubled in size since its inception in 2011, and is experiencing strong annual growth, a testament to the demand and desire students and schools are putting in high quality experiential learning programs in Qatar and beyond.
The QLC is a unique leadership event, bringing thought leaders in the areas of youth activism, peace and reconciliation, social entrepreneurship and film advocacy, in addition to MUN, together with some of the region’s brightest high school students. The QLC format sees over ten unique sessions of workshops and presentations each hour, allowing students, teachers and recognized experts in their fields to learn and share from one another. The QLC is meant to be an incubator for ideas, and a networking opportunity for participants.
